  1. PES 2010 brings hope to Konami’s series with its new iteration. Nice gameplay and fantastic visuals for the actually first Next-Gen Pro Evolution Soccer game.
  2. We enjoyed PES 2010's slower pacing, but FIFA 10 is slightly better. Especially FIFA's extensive licenses are missing from PES 2010.
  3. This year it is really a pity that Konami forgot to properly convert PES to the PC because Pro Evo could have won the virtual football battle against EA Sports - especially with graphics.
  4. Visuals: improved. Tactics: Improved. Chorals: Improved. Collision Detection: Worsened. Team Mates AI: Debilitated. Main Commentary: Absolutely annoying. Result: Stay with last years PES. [Dec 2009]
  5. The king is back on top, on the modding-friendly PC at least. [Christmas 2009, p.93]
  6. Still playable, but coasting on a years-old reputation that needs to be renewed sharpish if Pro Evo is to stay relevant. [Dec 2009, p.82]
  7. Immaculate physics. [Christmas 2009, p.84]
  8. Improvements are there, but lean toward the superficial side of this prolific franchise. [Issue#26, p.53]
